In this edition, we talk to A2D Black Book Partner Erik Sandøy about his background and expertise, the new Black Book concepts and what the future of travel and events might look like.
Erik Rune Sandøy
Black Book Partner
Our aim with Black Book is to offer experiences you simply cannot get anywhere else: exclusive access to properties, private dining in extraordinary surroundings and the opportunity to meet artists, film directors, actors and musicians in their own homes, right where you are. We offer a ‘menu’ of expertise on a wide range of interesting subjects like art, food and wine, and we go beyond our client’s expectations.
Can you give some examples?
For example, people can book a private dinner in the historical house of a famous actor with food prepared by a top chef, wine curated by a sommelier and fantastic live music. Or they can go on an art tour following in Edvard Munich’s footprints with breakfast at the Grand hotel and lectures, lunch in Frognerparken, immersed in Gustav Vigeland’s universe, or a private theatre performance in Henrik Ibsen’s house of one of his plays.
I think tailor-made travel experiences are becoming more and more important for both individuals and companies. People are also keen to leave a good impression, something that makes a difference. We are also seeing green travel as the future, with ecologically sustainable products in all aspects of the travelling experience. Travellers are demanding more sustainability from companies and partners, and the focus on nature conservation is something people are considering a lot.
